Ford’s pint-size Puma crossover will get a pure-electric version.

Ford has revealed that its new Puma crossover will benefit from an all-electric powertrain from 2024. The newcomer will form part of Ford’s new ‘Model e’ plan, which includes two larger EV SUV models and four new electrified vans.

While Ford has said the Puma will be built in the Romanian plant that used to produce the discontinued EcoSport, it has remained tight-lipped about other details. However, Ford’s teaser image shows the design of the electric Puma isn’t likely to change drastically from the standard car. There’s a new headlight design, while the lack of an engine will mean less cooling is required so we could see a closed grille similar to the Mustang Mach-E’s.

Joining the Puma later will be two larger electric SUVs – a ‘medium-sized crossover’ and a ‘sport crossover’ -and these bigger EVs will be the first to benefit from Ford’s agreement with Volkswagen Group and will use its MEB platform that currently underpins the ID.3 and ID.4.

Unlike the larger SUVs, the upcoming Puma EV is likely to use the same Global-B platform that underpins the internal combustion engined model, and while there’s no word on battery size expect a range of over 320km, allowing it to rival models such as the MG ZS EV and Peugeot e-2008.
